Properly Storing Hummingbird Feeders

Clean the feeder thoroughly with hot water and mild soap. Make sure it is completely dry before storing to prevent mold growth.

Disassemble the feeder and store each part separately. Check for any damages and make repairs if needed before storing.

Store the feeder in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid storing it in areas where pests may be attracted to the sugar residue.

Consider storing the feeder in a sealed container to further protect it from pests and moisture during the off-season.

Check the feeder periodically during the off-season to ensure it remains clean and in good condition. Make any necessary adjustments or repairs.

By following these steps, you can ensure your hummingbird feeder stays in good condition and is ready for use when the hummingbirds return in the spring.
